‘Cheesy’ Vegan Pizzas That are as Ooey and Gooey as the Real Deal


Cheese pizza is the simple, go-to childhood classic that still provides the same comfort and happiness in adulthood! There’s nothing better than having a slice that is dripping with stretchy cheese — vegan cheese that is. In this day and age, vegan cheese is so advanced and refined that even those who eat dairy regularly frequently get fooled by it. Whether it is vegan mozzarella, feta, parmesan, or ricotta, pizzas can now be just as satisfyingly cheesy and gooey sans dairy!

See for yourself the remarkably similar tastes and textures between vegan cheeses and the real deal.
